Justin Bieber went to bible study with on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez this week.
After making headlines around the world following a failed punch by actor Orlando Bloom in Ibiza last month, Justin Bieber went to bible study with longtime sweetheart Selena Gomez earlier this week.
An eyewitness said Justin attended bible study with Selena at his regular place of worship, the City Church, Los Angeles, on Wednesday evening.
The service was reportedly held by the on-off couple’s mutual pal and mentor, Pastor Judah Smith. Previously, both stars have made social media postings from the same church.
The 20-year-old “Baby” singer, who was raised a Christian by his born-again mother Pattie Mallette, is said to have arrived after the session began. He later posted — then deleted — a days-old kissing photo of himself and Selena on his Instagram page.
Justin’s caption read: “Right now everything else is a blur.”

Eyewitness and oft media-cited celebrity blogger “Stalker Sarah” noted the actress Francia Raisa and Bieber’s pal, Ryan Good, were also at the bible study, before tweeting:
“Justin & Selena met at church & left together.Think what u want but as u all know they’ve been friends for yrs, I just love seeing them happy.”
Of Bieber and Gomez’s interaction in the church, Sarah added: “She had her arm around him with his head resting on her shoulder.”
In addition, a source allegedly told the Daily Mirror:
“The pair sat next to each other while partaking in bible study and seemed very close. They then left together in Bieber’s car.”
“Justin looked really comfortable with Selena as he still thinks their bond is unbreakable and knows that Selena will always love him.”

That same Wednesday Justin tweeted: “God is good,” some hours after his lawyers entered his guilty plea to lesser charges of careless driving and resisting arrest without violence in a Florida DUI case.
“Who is your anchor? God is good @judahsmith,” he followed up on Thursday.
News of Bieber and Gomez’s bible study comes after an eyewitness spotted the couple at an Los Angeles movie theater late Monday/early Tuesday. It’s also where the kissing photo was taken.
The pair are said to have watched Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy. Neither of these reported trips are mentioned on Selena’s social media pages.
The couple, who first started dating in 2010, have kept fans and media guessing with endless breakups. They appear to be trying the romance route again. But who knows? Certainly, the kissing snap shows affection remains.
However, Gomez’s reaction to Bieber making out with Playboy Playmate Alyssa Arce, amid sightings with Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik and the Latina’s former gal pal Kendall Jenner during his recent break in Ibiza, isn’t known.

For her part, the actress-singer was seen getting close to Royal Yacht Supplies founder, Tommaso Chiabra in St. Tropez, France, when she celebrated her 22nd birthday in July.
Earlier this year Justin was baptised in a bath in New York City by Hillsong Church Pastor Carl Lentz, reportedly to get back in touch with his childhood faith amid a stressful time. The pastor told TMZ the ritual capped the singer’s completion of a week intensive of bible study.
A bath was used after Bieber struggled to find a church that could guarantee privacy, the website added.
Meanwhile, Selena — who has endured her own difficulties this year, with a rehab stint in January, gossip site hit pieces and a June split from Justin — gave a tearful speech at last Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards.
While, accepting the Choice Ultimate award, the starlet said:
“Thank you so much! I have to be honest — especially this month – I cannot thank you guys enough.”
“You remind me amidst all the stuff that we deal with personally, you remind me of what’s important. That’s giving and loving and caring about each other… you guys make me better.”
For better or worse, Bieber and Gomez’s relationship really does seem to be unconditional.
